Re: Consumer Reports Got It So Wrong!

Your point being? I'm just trying to find a silver lining. :) I wasn't arguing with you. (Indeed, I wasn't addressing you at all. It was just "Hey, here's what they're saying now.") On what conceivable basis would you say the i-MiEV "didn't actually make any 'worst' lists"? I wa...

Re: Consumer Reports Got It So Wrong!

There's a bit about the i-MiEV in the current CR (April, the "2016 Annual Auto Issue"). It's not all negative -- it's number two on the overall "Best Mileage" chart (behind only the BMW i3), and it didn't actually make any "worst" lists. ;) In the individual listings, ...

Re: Consumer Reports Got It So Wrong!

Happened again! Talking with an interested bystander who had obviously been doing his homework - he brought up the Consumer Reports review! I am afraid that that single article did more damage to i-MiEV sales than all the other silly negative reviews combined! Pathetic, really. It was very destruct...

Re: New Owner In Albuquerque NM

I'm in the far NE Heights, north of Alameda just off I-25, but we putter around the NE down to downtown/UNM quite a bit, and the i-MiEV's usually the car we take to Isotopes Park - just look for your twin (though my 2012 ES isn't so well equipped - no rear speakers, no heat for passenger seat, etc.)...

Re: Insurance hassles

Given the massive depreciation on these cars, you have to wonder what the problem is. It wouldn't take much to total it for cheap, and I can't believe they're particularly accident-prone. Perhaps Progressive has had some personal injury claims experience that's skewed their underwriting - we need to...

Re: New Owner In Albuquerque NM

Welcome Aerowhatt!!! Very glad you went through with the 2014 MN purchase we discussed a couple months back, and even happier that you're so satisfied. Message me some time and let me know what part of town you're in - I'm curious to know when I should be keeping an eye out for some company out here...

Whatever. This thread obviously wants to be about something else.

Re: Winter Driving Range Extender

With limited EV production capacity, this obviously isn't a top priority for Mitsubishi right now. But I hope Nissan (and before too long Mitsu as well) are paying attention to this. An expensive fueled heater modification isn't worth it to me in Albuquerque (where the cabin-warming sun shines right...

Re: $10k for a brand new i-MiEV?

I bought my Smart ED for $19K taxes included. Ah, but does that include the battery, or are you leasing that? ;) To a broader point - the topic here was the impact of various state EV incentives on bottom-line i-MiEV prices around the U.S. The situation in other countries, even Canada (fond as we a...
